About this Event

The ESRC IAA Steering Group warmly invites all social scientists interested in knowledge exchange, impact, and research engagement beyond the university environment to the inaugural Social Science Impact Conference.


This event is aimed at research-active colleagues and includes PhD students, post-docs and Early Career Researchers.


We also invite researchers outside of the social sciences hoping to meet and engage with social scientists, as well as potential collaborators from outside of the university.


The conference will be an opportunity to hear from researchers and colleagues about successful impact case studies from around the University of Cambridge.


You will also get the chance to bring your own research to develop your pathways to impact. The Steering Group will offer guidance and advice on how to plan and write a successful application to the ESRC Impact Fund.


The ESRC IAA is a 4-year grant (2019-2023) of circa £1million to accelerate impact from social science research.


The conference will be held on 30th March 2020 from 10:15-3:30 at Murray Edwards College. Lunch will be included.

Following the conference, we will be hosting a drinks reception at the same venue, giving you the chance to network with speakers and other attendees.



A detailed programme is to follow but please do book your ticket as soon as possible as spaces are very limited and we anticipate high demand. If you book your ticket and find you're unable to attend, please do cancel to allow another person to attend.

The conference is aimed at research-active social scientists, with some slots allocated to researchers outside the social sciences and external organisations.


Murray Edwards College has good wheelchair access and all spaces at the event will be accessible to wheelchair users. The conference space is fitted with an induction loop. More information about accessibility can be found here. If you have any access requirements and would like to discuss these ahead of time please don't hesitate to get in touch.
